Southern New Jersey Man Lying On Tracks Killed By Train

DELANCO, N.J. (AP) — Investigators in New Jersey say they’re not sure why a man was lying on the tracks just before he was fatally struck by a southbound NJ Transit River Line train this weekend.

NJ Transit spokesman Dan Stessel says 45-year-old Scott Maurer of Delanco was struck around 9:50 p.m. Friday in the Burlington County community, not far the Beverly station. He was taken to Cooper University hospital in Camden, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

None of the 20 people aboard the train—a conductor and 19 passengers—were injured in the incident. The passengers were later transferred to another train and resumed their trip.

    Here’s an idea – maybe he was a moron who was drunk, high, or broke!

    1. Not as insensitive as you says:

      Buckweezer – keep your rude and ignorant comments to yourself. There are friends and family who might read this article and we should not be subjected to your ignorant speculation. It is possible he tripped and fell hitting his head rendering him unconscious . . until there are further details keep your comments to yourself. RIP Scott

      You are one major idiot, Buckweezer, with little respect for others.

    Hey, do you guys need an editor? This article is poorly-written and filled with typos, and it looks very unprofessional.
